Renes Glastechniek, glass tubes manufacturer with an experience of more than 50 years, offers you borosilicate glass tubes.

The human scale of our company allows us to assure our customers a high responsiveness and very short manufacturing times, even for urgent requests. Despite this responsiveness, we offer high-quality glass tubes.

Information on borosilicate glass tubes

Borosilicate glass is made of about 80% silica and 10% boron trioxide. His name is derived from its two main components. It also contains, in a smaller proportion, alkaline acids and alumina. This glass is clear and colorless.

What are the highlights of the borosilicate glass?

This type of glass can withstand high temperatures (up to 1500 degrees) and offers a good hydro and chemical resistance. Borosilicate glass is not very expandable and is resistant to thermal shocks, of the order of 500 ° C over a short period of time, which is three times higher than standard glasses.

Who are borosilicate glass tubes for?

Borosilicate glass tubes are designed for all those seeking an intermediate working temperature to the one tolerated by traditional soda-based glasses and lead-based crystal glasses. Borosilicate glass can be drilled, tempered, cut, laminated, curved or frosted, thus adapting to the individual needs.

Borosilicate glass tubes are frequently used in laboratories and in the advanced chemical industry because of their outstanding properties.

The borosilicate glass tube is also used in the manufacture of appliances such as dishwashers because of its ability to withstand high temperatures and corrosive products.

Designers appreciate the borosilicate glass tube as it easily allows them to create unique shapes with a blowtorch.

The different types of borosilicate glass

The borosilicate glass tube is available in a variety of formats: conical-bottom tube, flat-bottom tube or round-bottom tube. The conical-bottomed tube is mainly used in centrifuges. The flat-bottomed tube is particularly suitable for preservig liquids, while round-bottomed tubes are very popular in laboratories. Each of its models comes in a wide variety of sizes to meet to the most demanding needs.
